The Last Rose of Summer


Published 1903
Topics Oldtime


This was a test pressing of this historic performer. It was Levy in 1878 who was trying at shows to confuse the tin-foil phonograph by playing fast, but here we have the sounds of the same performer playing shortly before he died.

Very nice recording, I am not too sure what instrument this fellow is playing (Oh I COULD look it up..) but he plays it with such passion! Very very nice.
